Missing Orlando girl, 11, found in Georgia with alleged abductor

Officials searching for missing 11-year-old girl

Byrns is now in custody charged with kidnapping.

Officials said Johnson was reunited with her parents Sunday night.

A missing child alert was canceled Sunday for 11-year-old Alice Johnson, who was found in Macon, Georgia after disappearing from her Orlando home.

Byrns, pretending to be a girl in her young teens, began communicating with the victim after meeting her online through a PlayStation game, police said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Florida officers tracked her cellphone to pinpoint the 11-year-old to Macon, where police found her with a 24-year-old man at a Holiday Inn, reported WESH-TV.

Police said Byrns initially made contact with the girl through an online video game platform, where he posed as a young girl. Sheriff Demings said he believes that Bryns is a child predator and hopes justice will prevail in this case.

Bibb County juvenile crimes investigator Sgt. Tania Clausen says they've seen cases like this before.

"You really need to know who it is your children are communicating with and you really need to monitor their dialogues", said Demings.

"I would say she's lucky to be alive".

Neighbors say Byrns lives there with his mom and dad.

"Her mother had given us information in reference to a particular individual she was chatting with, and that's kind of what drew us in that direction", said Sgt. Brandon Ragan with the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The neighbors we spoke to did not want to go on camera, but did seem shocked to learn the news. Byrns is expected to face charges.
